The Bincoo GYKF0540 moka pot * has a classic octagonal shape but with smoother lines and a more contemporary look. It comes in 4 colors - black, green, silver, and white. The aluminum construction seems durable and conducts heat well. The handle and top knob are made of wood and stay cool.

Key Features

  • Double valve system for optimal extraction
  • Built-in thermostat prevents over-extraction
  • Durable aluminum body
  • Ergonomic wood handle stays cool
  • Large 120ml capacity makes 2 espresso cups
  • Includes dosing ring dispenser for easily adding grounds


What sets this model apart is the double valve system. There is a valve at the bottom to control water flow to the grounds, and one at the top to release the brewed coffee. This results in a more consistent pressure and better extraction.

It also has a built-in thermostat that lowers the temperature during brewing to avoid over-extraction. The water steeps through the grounds for one minute before releasing.

Brewing Experience

I found the Bincoo easy to use on my gas stovetop. Simply fill the bottom chamber with water, add grounds to the filter, and place on the stove. Soon, rich crema-topped espresso flows into the top chamber.

The taste was excellent - thick, strong espresso with nice crema. The thermostat helps prevent any burnt or bitter flavors.

Coffee Bean Selection and Grinding

To brew a perfect cup of espresso, the selection of high-quality coffee beans and the right grinding size are crucial. Freshly roasted beans provide richer flavors and aromas. An appropriate grind size ensures that the coffee releases its best taste and aroma during extraction. The Bincoo GYKF0540 moka pot’s double valve system is designed to maximize this extraction effect.


The 120ml capacity makes 2 servings of espresso in one brew cycle. The size is perfect for individual use or sharing morning coffee.


The aluminum construction can be hand washed with soap and water for simple cleanup after use. Users recommend periodic descaling as well.


The brew process itself produces light hissing sounds comparable to a typical moka pot. No complaints of bothersome noise have been reported.


The Bincoo GYKF0540 moka pot meets food grade standards in materials and processing. Pressure is safely modulated by the valve system. Proper sealing prevents hot leaks.
